Hi All,

I have been hit by Operation global 3. 

I followed instructions on the following post : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/559220/operation-global-iii-ransomware-not-only-encrypts-but-infects-your-data-as-well/page-2

But I cannot recover all my pictures, I click on the photo.jpg.exe and it opens the photo, re-creates the original file and deletes the .exe one...for some reason It only works for approximately 50% of them. 

Is there something I can do to recover those photos ?

Thanks in advance.
